More often then not, people shy away from cooking lobster. Seen as too challenging, people prefer to eat lobster out instead.

With this in mind, lets spend a second covering a fantastic lobster tail recipe that you can cook yourself. The best part is that the only cooking tool you will need is your stove.
Lets try to keep this recipe simple while not taking away from the fantastic taste associated with this delicacy. The first thing you will need of course is the lobster tail. Depending on the size of the lobster, this will change in ounces. For the sake of ingredient amounts, lets assume that you have a 20-ounce lobster tail. You will also need a half-cup of water, as well as salt and black pepper. Finally, you will need about 3 ounces of clarified butter.
Make sure that you have all ingredients out and ready to go prior to beginning the cooking process. This will ensure that you can quickly add things at the right time, allowing for a quicker and more efficient cooking process.
Take out your best frying pan and put the ½ cup of water in it. Turn the frying pan up to medium. While this is heating, rinse the lobster and open the lobster via the butterfly form. Also, put salt and pepper on the lobster for taste. With the lobster tail in the frying pan, steam heats the lobster tail for 8 minutes.

Once the time has passed, you are ready to enjoy your very own lobster tail! Remove from the frying pan, place it on your plate and enjoy.
You can either serve the lobster tail alone or match it with other foods to form a more fully rounded meal. In addition to being easy to make, this recipe is perfect for preparing delicious lunches for work.
